rouhani was elected, there was some acceleration leading up to the u.n. general assembly. you'll recall that rouhani was engaging in what was termed a charm offensive, right, and he was going around talking to folks. and at that point, it made sense for us to see, all right, how serious are you potentially about having these conversations. they did not get highly substantive in the first several meetings but were much more exploring how much room, in fact, did they have to get something done. and then as soon as they began to get more technical, at that point, they converged with the p5-plus-1 discussions. i will say this -- the fact of rouhani's election -- it's been said that there's no difference between him and ahmadinejad except that he's more charming. i think that understates the shift in politics that took place in this election. obviously, rouhani is part of the iranian establishment, and i think we have to assume that his ideology is one that is hostile to the united states and to israel. but what he also represents is the desire on the part of the iranian people for a change

they handed abe control of the upper house in an election in july. the ruling coalition now has control of both houses and can push through policies without worrying about the opposition. but this poll suggests voters may not support this kind of decision making. and it suggests abe could lose public support if he takes similar approaches in the future. >> and that was nhk world. >>> members of north korea's ruling party have confirmed that something that's been rumored for days, they announced that the uncle of leader kim jong-un has been dismissed. jong suntek served as vice chairman of the national defense commission and was widely seen as kim's mentor. >> north korean state-run television broadcast several photos taken during the meeting in which jong was sacked. one showed him being taken away from the venue. one newspaper reported on monday the party dismissed chung from all posts. the decision was made at a meeting attended by kim jong-un. the north korean leader was reported as saying chung was corrupted by capitalism and indulged in a depraved lifestyle. added chung had undermi

. something unprecedented has happened in the u.s. department of justice. when president obama was elected in 2008 and organized the department of justice in 2009, he created the most politicized part of justice we had at least since the nixon administration if not before hand. and this isn't just opinion. it's a sixpack. think about this for a second. the department of justice is an entity that is the signed to interpret and enforce the law. when president obama appointed the attorney general he appointed eric holder who had been the campaign chairman and anti-campaign bumbler a large dollar fundraiser for his election and for other senior fr spots at the department of justice also occupied by campaign bumbler's. that is unprecedented in american history. and during the last four years what you've seen in the department of justice is a centrally enforce the law in such a way as to where they go after the political opponents of the president and they lay off the political friends and supporters of the president. it's a centrally using the department of justice like the brick for this week
. >> that frustration has been out there for several cycles. once we got past 08 was a historic election and one in which people felt good about and maybe the country could turn a corner, what we have seen since then is polarization is worse than ever and the anger at washington is deeper than ever. i think part of this is related to the lack of real recovery for so many people with the economy. there a series of elements and people don't know what to do and when it comes time for election, they go back to the two sides. the republican or the democratic side. that outweighs so much else. even though the anger towards washington persists. >> brad and fred, you are big consumers of focus groups. anything in that group surprise you some. >> not at all. we see that everywhere whether it's a fly over country or the coast. i predict the voters will figure out how to take out anger on washington next year. it hurts republicans a lot less when voters are angry. they know republicans hate government. when government is disfunctional, they punish the people who like government. that's democrats. democrats
yanukovych who, of course, these protestors want out and new elections taking place, has offered the possibility of talks. the opposition initially have said, we're not prepared to talk. when we're hemmed in by your riot police. but i think with katherine ashton's arrival, there is a possibility, at least account, that the -- at least, that the warg factions in this dispute might move towards talking to each other. that will certainly be her aim. and it's also, i think, although one can never be sure about these things, that while she is here, perhaps the authorities will not move against the protestors who are still camped out here, as we were saying, and also occupying city hall. >> they are camped out in what are freezing conditions. it's been snowing there for most of the day, as far as we can see. how long can they keep this going bearing in mind they have the threat of people moving in and the freezing conditions to deal with? >> well, it's extraordinary. some of these people have been here for more than two weeks. they're living in tents. and they don't have the latest pol
